Your monitor’s refresh rate is the number of times per second that it redraws the image on the screen. The refresh rate is measured in hertz (Hz), and the higher the refresh rate, the smoother the image will appear. Most monitors have a refresh rate of 60Hz, but some higher-end monitors can have refresh rates of 144Hz or even 240Hz. If you’re a competitive gamer or if you just want the best possible image quality, you’ll want to use a monitor with a high refresh rate.
To change your monitor’s refresh rate, you’ll need to go into your monitor’s settings. This can usually be done by pressing a button on the monitor itself, or by using the buttons on your computer’s keyboard. Once you’re in the monitor’s settings, look for the option that says “refresh rate” or “Hz.” If you don’t see this option, consult your monitor’s manual to see how to change the refresh rate.
Once you’ve found the refresh rate option, use the arrow keys to change the refresh rate to the desired value. If you’re not sure what refresh rate to use, try starting at 144Hz and then working your way down if you’re not seeing a noticeable difference. Once you’ve found the best refresh rate for your monitor, be sure to save your changes before exiting the settings menu.
